Review appositive phrases with this fun grammar game. Throughout this power point presentation, teams of students review appositives and compete to shoot baskets into a trash can. For the first two rounds, students simply identify the appositive phrases in each sentence, but the difficulty increases in the third round when they have to combine sentences to create new sentences with appositive phrases.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this game motivates them with their love of sports. When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for a game with friendly competition, it is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
Depending on the ability of your students, the game usually takes 45 minutes to play. The power point presentation includes a slide which explains the rules at the beginning of the game, and a key is provided on the last slide. Additionally, there are four review slides of appositive phrases.
With this game, you will be amazed that your students will want to learn grammar! Here are other games if you will be teaching more phrases:
